so while i was surfing some sites, i must have contracted some sort of devious ad/spam/virus without ever noticing until i....

shut down my browser, my wallpaper was changed to a blue screen alerting me to some fatal error with notice that some trojan virus program had taken over.

i freaked. didn't know what to do so i saved a bunch of important stuff to zip discs and then started deleting shit off of the hard drive.

so later, i was in control panels, clicked on display, and saw that my old wallpaper jpeg of me and my bike had been deleted and this blue screen/trojan spam program had taken it's place. i now get a popup ad every now and then wanting to direct me to some antispyware site.

i have to run some utilities programs and hopefully all will be well again. anyone else ever see anything like this?

tex

p.s.- yeah dudes, i already know i suck and am stupid with computers.

Can you 'revert' your computer to an earlier time? I know some operating systems give you the option to revert to an earlier day/ time. It'll only run programs and files up to a specified time/ date. At least then you can get online and download an antivirus program off limewire or the like.
Good luck.
